    If you're going to sell fakes, make your own website and openly say it's a replica.

    eBay simply won't work ESPECIALLY since you're trying to pass them off as authentic. It doesn't matter how good a fake, if it's impossible to tell it's a fake from looking at it you'll get busted when the person tries to register for warranty. And let's be honest here, even the best fakes look fake and more often than not they don't have the performance of the real thing.

    What you're going to end up with is a guy buys the phone and then puts in a claim saying the phone is fake. eBay will let him keep that phone, refund him, and ban you.

    Edit: Just did some slight digging, you mentioned 5x profit so I can be pretty certain you're trying to sell the MTK6582. I'd call it a decent fake, not a good fake. There's a few dead giveaways, such as the indicator light "leaks" (where it has a halo around the bulb), the screen native resolution is quoted as 1280x720 and I suspect the about page reports a fake resolution of 1920x1080 and there's far too much black bezel around the display, the about page says "zhanghaiingquiang" in the kernel information, and there's no 4G/LTE bands so the person is likely to notice it's not very fast.

    Your account won't last long selling stuff like that.
